  In reply to: There has to be a logical way to control gun violence.  posted by Wooderson ignoring incidents like this for gun policy setting purposes (regardless of whether you fall on the "we need fewer guns available" or "teachers should be armed" side of the debate).

Something like this happens and everyone zeros in like a laser on gun control, which is unfortunate, because the focus and debate should be the effect of guns on gang violence and domestic violence and other pervasive instances of gun violence in society, not responding to once in a decade horrors like this. It's sort of like discussing national traffic and vehicular safety standards in the context of a suicide who decides to drive in the left hand lane at high speed until he rams an oncoming car.
